Abstract: The study was conducted to determine the factors that relate to the academic performance of the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology students in Basic Computer Programming course. The researchers administered survey questionnaires to 200 second year BSIT students. In terms of professor-related factors, the researchers found out that the top characteristic of computer programming professors for them to be perceived as having mastery of their course is the knowledgeability of the teacher. A general friendly atmosphere is the most preferred choice of the students for classroom management. While being inspirational and respectful are preferred personalities for their teachers. Also, giving challenging tests is the preferred teaching strategy for the students. In terms of student-related factors, the researchers found out that application of programming skills in future career ranks most among the students. The adequacy of computers is the foremost concern of the students to have a very conducive learning environment. The students perceive that studying hard is crucial to success in their career. As for social stimuli, the students perceive that group collaboration works best for them. While compliance with requirements is the most viewed critical for them to achieved better academic performances. The researchers conclude that all the stated factors both student-related and teacher-related, are directly related to the academic performance of the students. Therefore, the researchers recommend enhancing these factors.
